Unforgettable Tips and Tricks for Business Presentations

We asked the experts and ended up coming up with this excellent list of PowerPoint tips and tricks for business presentations that should please anyone facing the big day. Check our guide on where to find images for powerpoint presentations or how to create a photo album in powerpoint.

One of the biggest PowerPoint presentations tips and tricks people have put forward in the last few years is the so-called ‘5 by 5’ rule. This idea states that each slide should somehow consist of a card that has no more than five lines, and that each line has five words. Not considering the title as part of the equation, this would put a limitation of 25 words on a card. Some people would say, however, that even five bullet points with five words apiece on them is far too much. Regardless, those who do find themselves writing a substantial amount should certainly try practicing with a rule like this so that they don’t continually outdo themselves.

Some Hot Tips for PowerPoint

Those who are putting a presentation together might want to try some of these following ideas:

  • Put information across a timeline with the provided template
  • Spend some time exploring the templates folder
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment
  • Save often, and save a second copy when trying out new things
  • Try out the calendar template to organize due dates and the like
  • Use auto shapes to make simple graphs
  • Convert sounds to MP3 or WAV formats to include in a presentation
  • Save all materials when burning to CD on a single disc to avoid any type of file error message
  • Keep text to a minimum
  • Use numbers to attract roving eyes, as readers are usually attracted to numbers

Some advice might take a little more explaining to put into play. Some people find that graphics have an unusual white background that tends to jut out if superimposed on a background of any other shade. What can be done about this is change the background over to white of only a single slide. The rest of the presentation can keep a far more attractive background while changing over only a single one to avoid this annoying problem. Some people end up changing every slide, but this isn’t necessary at all.

Putting it All Together

Putting tips and tricks for PowerPoint presentations is easier said than done, and many people continue to adhere to their old habits when it comes time to actually sit down and make a presentation. It doesn’t have to be like this though. One of the better pieces of advice in this respect is to avoid the help file that comes with the latest release of PowerPoint. A number of experts have suggested that following tips on making a good presentation is generally more important than following the file’s advice. For an idea on why this is, the help file suggests many things involving overloading slides with all of the features that PowerPoint has to offer.
